Guest post by Amy Sullivan Cahill(member Stites & Harbison PLLC, Louisville KY) April 15, 2014 False, misleading or fake “likes”, “favorites” or “endorsements” have been a topic on my mind recently and one that I have found quite interesting, particularly since the recent U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s “warning” in the Cole Haan Pinterest contest case.

(Between jet lag and the pace of ICANN-related events, it’s taken a while to summarize the events at ICANN 49 in Singapore…) Monday, March 23, began with the Opening Ceremony, even though the work of ICANN started on Saturday for many attendees. This ICANN meeting is freighted with history – Singapore was the site of ICANN 1, and also the site of ICANN 41 in 2011, where the New gTLD Program was officially approved.

I recommend to you Dorothea Salo’s presentation, “Soylent SemWeb Is People! Bringing People to Linked Data.” * Drawing on a rather stretched analogy to the Charleton Heston movie Solyent Green she… [read post]

I’ve been involved in the debate over whether we should criminalize “revenge porn.” As much as I despise the practice, I don’t agree with new criminal laws to punish it.
